Do you like easy walks with a clear goal and attractive places that you will see along the way? If so, then the route from Dvůr Králové to Kuks is tailor-made for you.  Make your first stop at the Dvůr Králové airport. 
 For the uninterrupted observation of aircraft, you can use the local refreshment stands with seating areas. Along the route you should definitely not miss the gallery of natural statues in Braun’s Bethlehem, and subsequently the 21st century Way of the Cross with the title “A Tale of Man’s Suffering and Hopes”. The last stop can be the quarry which is used as a natural gallery for sculptural works. From here, the Hospital is just a stone’s throw away. 

Kuks Hospital is a unique European Baroque complex, built in the first half of the 18th century by Count František Antonín Špork. The hospital building offers you a look at the history of Baroque art, and the development of pharmacy from the Baroque period to the 20th century is depicted by exhibitions in the Czech Pharmaceutical Museum. The complex includes the church of the Holy Trinity, the sacristy and the “At the Pomegranate” Baroque pharmacy. In the lapidary, originals of the Virtue and Vice allegories from the most important Czech Baroque sculptor, Matyáš Bernard Braun, await you; copies of these statues line the path in front of both hospital wings. The main hospital corridor offers a newly-restored cycle of Dance of Death murals. The hospital terrace, meanwhile, is decorated with Braun’s allegory of the Eight Beatitudes. You can also take a look around the hospital garden, which contains other sculptural works, and once again serves as a herb, fruit-growing and vegetable-growing storage area.
